2014
2014
Important information for customers with existing BladeCenter E chassis: The BladeCenter E chassis has been refreshed with a new 2320W power supply model. There is an upgrade kit for customers with existing chassis. If using a chassis with 2320W PS, there are no limitations. If using the existing 2000W PS, support will vary depending on the exact number of blades and processor configurations you choose.
HX5 is not supported on the BladeCenter E chassis. Use the BladeCenter H chassis instead.
For more information on Blades & Management Modules to Chassis Interoperability, see the Interoperability Guide - IBM BladeCenter

Upgrading to 2980W PSUs: Installation Guideline
To Upgrade an old BladeCenter H With 4 x 2980W Power Supplies, order two sets of option PN 68Y6601 (qty = 2)
AMM is required to install 2980W power supplies, with latest AMM code
Upgrading power supplies with Chassis off
– Shutdown blade servers & chassis
Upgrading Power Supplies While Chassis Is Running – NOT supported
Recommend to upgrade ALL power supplies to high-efficiency 2980W
– Having both 2900W and 2980W PSU pair is supported, provided they are in separate power domains
For latest-level firmware, go to http://www.ibm.com/systems/support
Retrofitting BladeCenter H – Enhanced Cooling Modules
To Upgrade an old BladeCenter H With enhanced blowers, order 1x option PN 68Y6650
AMM Is Required To Install enhanced blowers, with latest firmware
Upgrading Power Supplies While Chassis Is Running
– Blowers Must Be Replaced One At A Time
– Order Of Replacement Does Not Matter
– AMM Will Complain About Mismatch During Upgrade But Blades and Switches Will Operate As Normal
– AMM May Need To Be Reset If AMM Status Does Not Return To Normal After Upgrade Is Completed
– All blowers in a chassis must be of the same type

FlexNode benefits include:
Scheduled Provisioning: Run scale-out apps by day on a 2P system and scale-up jobs by night on 4P system
Help reduce software licensing costs: Execute partitions to optimize software licensing costs when priced per system core.
Boost security: Isolate workloads to help improve security and assure quality of service.

FlexNode - feature allows a single System to dynamically become two distinct Systems or back again
AMMAMM
eX5 FlexNode automatic node failover Automatic node failover makes eX5 multi-node systems the most reliable
What is it… If one node in a multi-node system experiences a fatal error and a shutdown, the
system will reboot as a single-node After reboot the remaining system continues to operate without the failed node
Customer value… Greater uptime: Automatic reboot brings the eX5 system back online faster than
manual intervention. Monolithic multi-socket systems down until the fatal error resolved. Simpler management: Easier identification of the failure

MAX5 doubles memory capacity
Expand memory capacity Up to double the number of memory DIMMs
than the competitors No impact to memory latency Over five times the memory capacity in two
sockets vs. today’s leading two-socket systems MAX5 memory may be partitioned to CPUs or
pooled
With embedded memory controllers, memory capacity is tied to processors
But not with MAX5…
Provides the memory customers have needed for database and virtualization – up to 100% more virtual machines
Allows higher memory capacity to be reached with less expensive DIMMs for more economical high end implementations
